Still in a yard waiting to be bought. There are rumours it has been bought but it hasn't, I wish Elliot Hall would tour it again.

---- Post Info Added ----

Looks like showman Cullens who bought Stanley Gambles Tagada has come over to collect the Tagada and is giving it a run for it's money at Hull first, good idea! :idea:

ARGH I miss the Boooo! button! Evan's Waltzer is diabolical! Terry has that atmospheric factor to the ride, it's just missing that one key thing, a decent ride itself, the mechanics are old and worn out, it's got no kick!
